EB2 - Natl. Interest Waiver
If it helps anyone, here is what happened with my case.
Married couple (Sri Lankan)
Field Office - Lincoln, NE

December 23, 2019 We received your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.
December 31, 2019 We accepted the fingerprint fee for your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status. Our Nebraska Service Center location is working on your case.
February 3, 2020 The fingerprints relating to your Form I-485 Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, were taken.
March 6, 2020 Received our EAD cards, valid for a year.
September 1, 2020 I140 was approved
September 25, 2020 We transferred your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, to another USCIS office that now has jurisdiction over your case.(transferred from Field office in NE to the National Benefits center in MO)
November 3, 2020 We sent a request for initial evidence for your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.
December 4, 2020 USPS delivered the medical I693 to NBC in MO, (didn't require any signature at receiving, mailed to the PO box via USPS) (Just to be clear the online case status didn't change from November 3 to January 12)
January 12, 2021 New Card Is Being Produced

We were in the process to apply for EAD renewal (no USCIS fee for that) as it was expiring in 2.5 months. Also, note, we didn't have an interview. The online status changed from "Sent for RFE" to "New Card is Being produced".

Now we are waiting to get the GC in hand. I highly recommend creating a USCIS online account which gives you the history and supposedly a tracking number for the GC. I will update that once I receive the GC. For now hang in tight. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Eb2 - almost 2 years since submitted I485
Reading all comments from different people about receiving the green card in less then a year I feel frustrated. My application has been pending since March 2019 and no update since than. I work for the same company for 5 years already and started with H1B. Tried to contact USCIS, the only response I got was - please wait. I already asked my senator for assistance. Does anybody has an experience writing to senator? Did it help?

Do I mail Two Medical RFEs for Spouse?
Married Couple with a baby
Field Office: Los Angeles

During last week we received two RFEs for our case. One for each of us. We need to supply them a new Form I-693(medical exam).
Besides that, on my RFE, it also requires to provide proof of shared life together (joint bank account, birth certificate(s) of child(ren) born to the spouses etc.)

We were told we can mail these evidence by ourselves.

My question will be: after gathering all these documents.
1. Should I reply them in two separate mail packages, One for me and one for my wife?
2. The return address on the RFE is a P.O Box, Should I use USPS Priority Mail with Certified Mail and Return Receipt or I can consider FedEx/UPS as well?

Thank you for any suggestions in advance!

Did not get receipt of EAD Renewal in 2 months. I485 - No response after medical rfe. EB3 ROW 2019 Oct RD
I sent the EAD renewal application by myself on Nov 2nd 2020 and its been 2 months and I have not got receipt yet. The package was received by uscis lockbox. My EAD expires at the end of Jan. I applied late because I was waiting for the approval of I-485 which was submitted on 2019 Oct 16 but no response after medical rfe submitted on July 27 2020. Is there anyone with the same timeline, Any help is appreciated.

Changing the employer after 180 days
Hello, does anybody has an experience in changing employer after 180 days from submitting 485 pertition ? I have been waiting since March 2019 for the interview or any update on my case, but nothing. And now I have an opportunity to change the employer, but want to know how hard is it? Will it cause more questions on interview? Is it risky?

I765 and I131 - Combo Card Renewal - Its been 2 weeks after submission - No update
Hi all

I submitted my Combo Card renewal on Dec 1st - Received by USCIS Chicago Lockbox and yet to receive a G-1145 E-notification or paper-receipt.
Is this the recent-normal?
I am nervous as i have my EAD expiry coming up by March 23rd 2021.

is there anyone in the same boat? Please share your thoughts and experience to understand better
is this delay cos of the Holidays and Year end shutdowns of operations with USCIS?

Different receipt numbers!

I have applied for AOS under EB1C ROW since July 2020 with a receipt number MSC20xxxxx. On 10/27, I received an RFE for supplement J which I responded to on 11/16. The receipt number I got upon RFE acknowledgement went by MSC21xxxxxx. Does this mean my application has shifted to a new fiscal year?
Moreover, the uscis app read RFIE on 10/27 but the letter I received was titled RFE. Similarly, upon receiving the RFE response the uscis app status read RFE response received. I wonder why it was stated as RFIE initially and does it have any bearing on the processing time.

I'd appreciate any comments.Thanks
